Hello From Northern Ca

Hi all,

I live in northern Ca in the foothills above Auburn. My reason for joining is I have a R1200RS and will be doing a coast to coast ride from Orlando to northern Ca this Sept.

I also am heavily involved in land speed racing, our team and I currently hold the motorcycle world land speed record at 376.363 mph. We recently returned from Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia where we competed for the first time.

I've met some of the best people in motorcycle circles and look forward to meeting more here.

Thanks for having me.

Re: Hello From Northern Ca

Welcome to I-BMW, Rocky...

As Craig mentioned, we would be very interested to know more about your land speed efforts...

And although the timing may not work out for you this year, you should join us sometime at the Sierra Gold Rush Rally...

The Top 1 Ack Attack is powered by twin turbocharged Suzuki Hayabusa engines capable of a little over 1,000 hp at the rear wheel. We've set the ultimate 2 wheel land speed records 3 times and are the current record holder. We recently returned from competing in Bolivia at Salar De Uyuni, where I ran 378 mph before having an intake issue which ended our attempt. I was tracking well over 400 mph as the measured mile was still over a half mile away when we broke. Our plan is to return in July with our ultimate goal of taking the record over 400 mph. My best run measured 394 mph at Bonneville, peaking at 401.7 mph before decel. Thanks for your interest in our project.
